📋 Ingredients

Here are the ingredients (amounts are in the recipe card below).

Ingredients for miso mayo dipping sauce.
  • Miso paste – I use lighter-colored miso paste. White miso paste is the way to go for a sweet and mild taste. If you’re looking for more rich flavor, try red miso.
  • Mayonnaise – I use store-bought Japanese mayonnaise, also known as “Kewpie mayo,” which is slightly sweeter and tangier than traditional mayonnaise. You can also make your own mayo by combining egg yolk, rice vinegar (or lemon juice), salt, and vegetable oil (see the recipe here).
